Yes. You are doing something wrong lol. The membership table is completely sortable by name as well as many other categories. Did that 9th grader ever make it over to give you puter lessons? I'm guessing no.. :wink:

It is FAR from intuitive.
Darts with parasites are analogous to mixed tanks, there are no known benefits to the frogs with either.


If tone is more important to you than content, you are at the wrong place.

...and, here's a question.
When I go to look up a member it has a, b, c, d, etc. But, when I go to a letter those members are not alphabetized. I get ;

What's up with that?

Member directory - Alphabetical ?

Postby itskris » Sat Jan 19, 2013 3:50 pm

Looks like it's sorted by signup date. Can you further sort by clicking the column heading once in the specific letter? I'm on my phone so I can't really tell.

multiple sortings....you can sort by:

1. User Name
2. Rank
3. Posts
4. Website, Location
5. Date Joined
6. Date/time last active

Rich and Judy...

Give me the name/description of the person whom you are looking for. I will then post detailed instructions on how to find him/her/it in 2 or three easy mouseclicks.

In most cases, click the sortable table TWICE.

The first clicky will usually set the table at the 'lowest' or perhaps 'most recent"

The second clicky of THAT SAME TABLE HEADER will sort the table 'more properly'

for further example, trying to find Chris Miller

1. Start On the HOMEPAGE of DART DEN.COM

2. Click on the table 'Members' which is located approx in the top center of the page. The word 'Members' can also be found as to the two (02) little chess men like icons located directly to the left of the word 'Members"

3. you COULD click the "C" letter found on the row of letters once and the table will set at the BOTTOM of the alphabetical of the 'C"s

4. you could also click on the "C" a SECOND time and the table will set to the TOP or alphabetical start of the 'C's.

5. Same with 'M's for "Miller"

6. If you believe Chris Miller has posted a few times or better yet, has posted quite a few times, you could alternately click 'POSTS' in lieu of any alphabetical letter.

REMEMBER to click the table 'Posts" TWICE if you are searching for MOST postings as just like the alphabetical example above, the Tables will go from BOTTOM or least to TOP or most.

another good thing to keep in mind is 'if at first click, the table doesn't appear as you wish, click the sortable header a SECOND time to resort the table in the opposite manner.

I guess I was not the only one clueless about how it worked. Thanks for clearing that up Phil.

I'm not sure who designed this layout, but before , here, we just went to the members' list and it was actually , really alphabetical, or it was (click) from date of sign-up.
What more do we need, why is it now different, how can it possibly be any easier than already there and alphabetical, or all by date?
Why the change? No benefit at all.

The input is saying it's not working as it could/should.

I actually like the fact that you can list with all the options as it is now. However, there must be a better way to present it. I have used the member list a few times, but just decided it was a waste of time. Now that Phil explained how it functioned, it all makes sense. However, if it had not been for that, I don't think I would have figured it out.
